I don't have the time to read all 8 pages worth of replies... But I think some people are misinterpreting this. I don't think Sather is enamored with Gilroy's play or potential, I just see this as Sather looking to retain a minor depth player on the cheap. Remember last summer when it looked like Christensen and the Rangers were not on the same page regarding a new contract (I think he wanted a 1 year deal), well Sather offered 2 years / $900K cap hit. Sounded like Christensen was going to test FA, yet he eventually agreed to take the deal anyway, although he may have been able to get a more money as a FA signing on the open market. Christensen, much like Gilroy, was not a must-have player on your roster (far from it), but if you can retain a player who adds some depth to your roster on the cheap, it's worth it. That's what we did. I think that's what will happen with Gilroy. Sather will offer him something low, if he accepts it, we have a little more depth for the bottom pairing, if he doesn't take it, no big loss for the Rangers....

That being said... I'm not a big fan of Gilroy and would have no qualms with him rejecting whatever the Rangers offer and testing FA.

This, this, this.

Big points in a contract year. Typical albatross in the making.

I'd be fine with Gilroy has a #7 next season. Especially if he is on a 2-way.

This a terrible place for that comment. Gilroy has never played better than he has tonight and you gotta bash him? Get a clue.

He's playing an amazing game, why are you singling a "breakaway" where he really only had a backhand available out?

That was still a pathetic backhander.

You do realize that your credibility is completely out the window at this point? Gilroy is having a fantastic game, anybody can see it. The fact that you can't admit it means this goes way beyond any sort of rational argument for you. If this is the guy the Rangers get if they sign him to a multi-year 1 mil per deal it will be a steal.

Keep digging yourself deeper and deeper, kiddo.

Gilroy created turnovers. His passes were crisp. He had some really nice pinches. He wasn't manhandled down low. If this isn't obvious, then your just flashing your silly Gilroy hate.

Gilroy was very good tonight, and this is coming from a guy who booed him from his couch during the season.

Yeah he wasn't bad, and I seriously dislike him.

He even threw a nice check in the corner on Fehr (I think), which is almost unheard of for him.

I am very much against re-signing Gilroy but can definitely admit he played well tonight.

He had a really rough first two shifts then settled in well- made some good passes, smart pinches, and even held his ground physically/positionally for the most part.

he was ok, but are you actually trying to justify bringing him back because of this game?

May I remind everybody that he was part of the PP that absolutely failed?

It didn't fail because of him.

Deeper and deeper . . . .

Gilroy finished the game -1, 1 hit (only Stepan had less, everybody else had more, yes even Wolski and Christensen) and he had a whopping 6:38 of PP time, and 2 missed shots.

If McCabe wasn't so bad, this guy would be our worst defenseman, worse than Eminger by far.

he played 18 minutes in a game that was like 90 minutes long. he was well rested and used strategically against the Caps marginal players. It's not amazing that he for once didnt look like absolute crap, its good coaching to protect him. If he was matched up against either of the top 2 lines for the Caps, he would have been eaten alive.
